Melissa did an amazing job helping us find our home this spring. It was not an easy closing for reasons outside our collective control and she stayed with us and fought for us! I can not think of a better partner in helping you find your new home!!! I would not use anyone else.

Melissa has been my real estate agent for over six years and for multiple transactions. She goes above and beyond at every step, and has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She is professional, confident, knowledgeable, friendly, and exceptionally responsive. I would absolutely recommend her.

My wife and I were in a time crunch between places, and our work schedules were extremely busy. Melissa was amazing to work with - very patient, easy to get along with, and very knowledgeable of areas in and around Boston. Once we found our place, Melissa made the process smooth and seamless, and it was all taken care of quickly and efficiently. We have highly recommended her to many of our friends and family!

When my wife and I saw an opportunity to buy a home in a highly desirable neighborhood, Melissa worked tirelessly to make the purchase affordable for our family. She took the time to understand our needs and priorities before engaging other parties and counseling us in the purchase negotiation. She also provided invaluable guidance in helping us sell our previous home, all of this in the dead of winter and under an extremely tight timeline. Melissa’s attention to detail and genuine passion for helping families find the home of their dreams helped take a lot of the stress and anxiety out of the hectic purchasing and sale process. We are so thankful to Melissa and in us she has customers and advocates for life!

My wife and I recently worked with Melissa Deland on the purchase of our home in a suburb south of Boston. As first-time home buyers we were nervous, inexperienced and full of questions. Melissa immediately put us at ease. She offered us expert advice and was completely candid about various properties we viewed with her. She was consistently available and responsive and very flexible in working within our busy schedules.   When leaving one property my wife and I were chatting about whether there might be any difficulties with snow plowing given the short dead-end street the house was located on. 15 minutes after idly wondering aloud about snow removal my wife's phone rang. It was Melissa and she already had an answer for us. Melissa actually took the time on her way out of the neighborhood to stop and speak with a gentleman out doing yard work and ask about snow removal on the street. We both feel like we learned a lot from Melissa and she was responsible for demystifying the entire process for us first-timers. My wife and I remain grateful to Melissa for guiding us and recommend her strongly without reservation.

Recently, I was fortunate enough to have the help of Melissa Deland and Foundation Realty Group when selling my condo and purchasing a new home. Melissa is extremely knowledgeable and more then willing to make this transition as easy as possible. Being my first experience selling a home I had tons of questions. Melissa was there to answer each and every question, no matter the time of day, or magnitude of the problem. Selling a home is an extremely stressful process and Melissa made it all so manageable. Without her help I do not know how I would have handled it. On top of it all: Melissa sold my home quickly for top market value. Her help allowed for me to sell a condo and move into the home of my dreams. I cannot thank or recommend her enough!

We worked with Melissa Deland to purchase a home in a Boston suburb.  Melissa took the time to meet with us to learn about our vision for our family life to ensure she could represent us.  When we began our search, we lived 3,000 miles away and came to rely on Melissa entirely.  Ultimately we bid on a home we had not seen due to her strong recommendation.  We love our new home and community and could not have made this happen without Melissa.  She is exceptionally bright; timely and clear in her communication; and a wonderful representative of our family when the time came to lobby for us.  We would absolutely work with Melissa again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.

This summer, my partner and I bought our first condo, and Melissa was incredible throughout the entire process.  Prior to working with Melissa, we were pretty intimidated by the whole process, but she guided us through everything painlessly!  Any questions or concerns we had were promptly answered, and we appreciated the guidance with finding a mortgage broker and a lawyer for closing.  From the beginning to the very end, we felt very supported by Melissa, and were so thankful for all of her help. We would highly recommend Melissa and Foundation Realty Group to anyone looking to buy a home!

I cannot say enough good things about working with Melissa Deland and Foundation Realty Group. Melissa spent a lot of time with me to get to know what I was looking for, what price range I was comfortable with, and what my must-have list included. As a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of anxiety and questions. She was always available to talk and provided helpful information to inform my decisions. In my search, I had a few unusual circumstances arise (one seller backed out late in the process, another was totally inflexible on a long list of inspection items, and a home was not up to code) and Melissa helped me navigate them without feeling any pressure and with a real sense of advocacy.

Melissa is amazing. As a first time buyer, I originally started looking for property just to see what was on the market. Melissa was extremely helpful explaining the current real estate landscape in Boston and the surrounding areas. She was efficient setting me up with listings within hours of talking to her. I was able to email her with interest in or questions about different properties, and she got right back to me and contacted the other sellers and realtors extremely quickly to answer any questions she didn't have the answers to. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and walked me through all the different aspects of the process that I was uncertain about. When I found the property of my dreams, which due to Melissa's help was very quickly, she made the process incredibly easy and stress free. I had always been told buying a home was a painstaking process, but Melissa made it painless. She was always ten minutes early to appointments and would meet me wherever I was to make things go as easily for me as possible. I was definitely a client with a lot of questions, and Melissa answered each one with patience and an astute knowledge of her business. I couldn't be happier with Melissa's service and expertise and always felt that I was in more-than-capable hands. I would recommend her in a second to anyone looking who is thinking about or ready to buy property. She is truly the best.
